Day 1

Home - Port Douglas
Your tour begins with a flight to the beautiful Far North Queensland, arriving in Cairns where your crew will be waiting to greet you. Transfer by coach to the city centre of Cairns where time will be allowed to purchase your own lunch before we make our way to Port Douglas. The magnificent Four Mile Beach with its seemingly endless sand is only a 4 minute stroll away from our resort where a lush tropical setting awaits.


Day 2

Daintree - Mossman Gorge
After breakfast, we will make our way to the Daintree for a river cruise. Take in the wonder of this pristine rainforest and learn about the unique flora and fauna. Next we will stop at Mossman Gorge, where there will be time to purchase your own lunch and browse the art gallery and gift shop. The electric shuttle is also included in your fare and allows multiple trips from the centre into the gorge where there are a number of easy walking trails. This afternoon, visit the acclaimed Hartley's Crocodile Adventures. The farm was relocated to a purpose built estuary to make it easy to watch dozens of crocs eager for dinner, from the safety of a croc cruiser. This visit is full of highlights, so be sure to pack your camera. Later settle into our accommodation for the next three nights.
